“The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year”
by Shani Greene-Dowdell, Carla Pennington, and Theresa Hodge
This anthology made up of 3 stories was just that Wonderful. The book started with Carla’s story titled “All I Want For Christmas” The story was about Melissa and Dorian and how they were able to make Christmas magical. I like how she gave Melissa a real life decision to make when dealing with the ex and the new guy. She told a story that had you rooting for the Dorian. That was romance to the fullest extent possible.
Shani followed up with her story “Make A Soulful Noise”. The story was adapted from the stage play she wrote last holiday season with the same title. I was not disappointed either by reading the story of Mariya and Donnie. Mariya’s teenage heart was just touching. It started off on Christmas Eve and ended on Christmas day 10 years later with the mother/wife, Rain returns to the picture. Donnie allows you to explore his rollar coaster emotions with his ex-wife, Rain, and new woman and how to move on. If you haven’t seen the stage play, you should!
Theresa rounded out the anthology with her story called “A Jenny’s Christmas”. She tells a tale of Jenny and her long time friend Braxton. Jenny’s last name “Christmas” alone lets you know it’s going to be a romantic story. As their romance developed you were given the chance to see just how much childhood friends could become a lasting couple.
I thoroughly enjoyed all three stories that centered around Christmas and finding love during “The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year”. A great read, not just during the holidays, but year round. Go ahead and download your copy today.
